Welcome, Pinners! Thanks to this little pin right here, I've had an incredible increase in traffic to this post. Welcome to What's Cookin' with the Johnstons! If you're looking for posts about diy crafts, recipes, pregnancy, or babies, you've come to the right place! Please note that the onesie in the first picture is from Sara Marie's shop Sweet November. Check out her shop to purchase this sweet onesie for just $10!I wrote a few days ago about the start to baby Beignet's wardrobe. While most of our things will be completely gender neutral, I thought it was important to have one onesie for a little girl and one for a little boy. I fell in love with this:
At first I thought I needed to cut out little circles of black fabric to make this onesie, but then I read something that said to use paint!
So I gathered my supplies and got to work! I used a pencil eraser for the larger beads and a sharpee dipped in paint for the smaller ones. I could have been more creative and done smaller ones or something else, but I really like the way this turned out.
All I did was take a pre-washed onesie and slipped some freezer paper inside so that if the paint went through it would not go to the other side of the onesie. Then I made pencil marks where I was going to put beads. I placed the flower where I thought it was going to go... I ended up moving it to the other side because I messed up on the smaller beads. :-)
I'm going to put this other flower on the side of a cute little white baby hat. I won't do that until the baby is here because the hat can easily be for a little boy if there's not a flower on it! I'll just hand stitch the flower on the hat, just like I did with the onesie.
I'm not hoping for a boy or a girl, just a healthy and adorable baby, but I do hope that some little girl gets to wear this onesie someday! In fact, I think this is so cute that I'm considering making one for myself... ;-)
